Paul keeps me in check, he always creates a plan, giving me total confidence. This was certainly the case when we were budgeting for my son’s university in Switzerland.
- Suddenly widowed
We gave Joan reassurance about her financial situation following her husband’s passing, so she could look forward to her future with confidence. Here’s her story:
Joan’s husband became ill and passed away before he retired from work. He had always dealt with their finances, which meant Joan was unclear about her future. She wanted to become more organised but didn’t know where to start.
Paul began by getting the full story from Joan, including how she needed help and what she wanted to achieve in her retirement. Joan’s husband had been employed with the same company for forty years, but there were several options available in respect of his pension. Following an in-depth review, Paul developed a strategy to withdraw a lump sum and leave the rest invested in the pension to provide an income and a comfortable retirement for Joan.
Paul’s detailed advice has enabled Joan to move on with her life without the stress of worry about money. She has been able to achieve things that may not have been possible had she not sought after our advice including renovating a house, which she rents out and paying for her son’s university fees.
Joan is now living her life with confidence, with less financial worry and stress. This has given her a newfound focus, as she continues to tick things off her list in retirement.
Reflecting on our advice, Joan said: "Paul keeps me in check, he always creates a plan, giving me total confidence. This was certainly the case when we were budgeting for my son’s university in Switzerland."
